He is being monitored 24X7 through a CCTV camera. The ward is separate from the other wards and has a television and an attached toilet. He has also been provided with newspapers and a bedsheet.

A senior Tihar official said,"Kanhaiya who was brought to Tihar at around 8 pm has been lodged in a separate cell of ward number 4 of jail number 3. Two Tamil Nadu Special Police personnel have been deputed to keep a round-the-clock watch over him and ensure his safety."

High security alert has been installed for the safety of the student leader.

JNU grabbed the spotlight when two student groups clashed over Parliament attack mastermind Afzal Guru's hanging and termed it as a "judicial killing".
